I have been researching starting up my own gun store with an indoor shooting range and gun safety training classes. After researching costs, I am looking at close to 850K for complete start up. This includes all equiment required for a 10 lane indoor shooting facility (complete and meeting all safety requirments), initial inventory investment, store requirements (display cases, etc), licenses, insurance, and security needs.
I know this business would make money in the area I live in from researching similar businesses in my state and nationwide.
I am working on completing my business plan and after seeing what kind of start-up capital I am going to need, I am starting to get discouraged.
Friends and family do not have this kind of money to invest in such a business.
Where is the best place to look for this kind of capital needed for a start up?
